Pharmaceutical and Dietary Treatments for Fragile X Syndrome and Alzheimer’s Disease
My laboratory conducts basic and translational science research in the fields of fragile X syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease with a focus on the synaptic function of amyloid beta protein precursor (APP) and amyloid-beta. Our goal is to identify pharmaceutical and dietary approaches that reduce amyloid-beta and rescue seizure, behavioral, cognitive and biomarker phenotypes in these disorders.
